Try booting with the kernel option: 'acpi=off'. If that works, you have
a either a buggy acpi implementation on your notebook, or you are being
bitten by a acpi kernel bug. If so, please post to debian-laptop, they
generally know more about such things. The ones on this list that use
laptops probably are subscribed to debian-laptop as well. At least I am,
and I know of a few others.
